Traceability for Manufacturers in Cosmetics and Nutraceuticals
COSMETICS AND NUTRACEUTICAL MANUFACTURING
Cosmetics and nutraceutical manufacturing and distribution are all regulated by the FDA and contain similar compliance requirements. Cosmetics and nutraceutical manufacturing must comply with quality, ingredient and labeling regulations that preclude cosmetic and personal care products and supplements from mass recalls. Compliance with FDA regulations for cosmetics and nutraceuticals requires end-to-end supply chain visibility delivered through traceability at the product and lot levels and comprehensive data capture functionality.
Modern cosmetics and nutraceutical manufacturing ERP software supplies you with the tools to build insight into your entire value chain. Deploying upstream and downstream tracking capabilities empowers to fulfill compliance with nutraceutical and cosmetics FDA regulations for proper resource management, formula control and product labeling.
Cosmetics and nutraceutical manufacturers must ensure consistent adherence to ingredient control guidelines to fulfill compliance with FDA regulations. Ingredients in dietary supplements must be approved by the FDA, and cosmetics manufacturing requires documentation for all resources used in batch processing. Modern cosmetic and nutraceutical manufacturing ERP software provides you with comprehensive databases and electronic recordkeeping to capture all ingredient information from resource processing to distribution.
GOOD MANUFACTURING PRACTICES (GMP)
GMP impose process control requirements on FDA-regulated industries that deliver quality assurance to consumers. These include maintenance and sanitation of facilities and equipment, personnel guidelines, raw material management, and corrective and preventative action plans. Modern cosmetic and nutraceutical manufacturing ERP software allows you to automate these functions to ensure consistent quality control for each batch production cycle.
SUPPLY CHAIN TRACEABILITY
Though cosmetics and nutraceutical manufacturing have different levels of traceability requirements, deploying track-and-trace capabilities for personal care product and dietary supplement supply chains affords compliance with both minimum regulatory and best practice standards. In the case of cosmetics distribution, increasingly stricter FDA mandates will transition compliance obligations from lot-level traceability to product level by 2020. Modern cosmetic manufacturing ERP software permits batches to be traced from the lot level down for easier identification and tracking.
Both cosmetic and nutraceutical manufacturers must ensure consistent, accurate ingredient labeling on each end product package entered into distribution. These product labels must include all relevant materials, including allergens and potentially hazardous ingredients, and be displayed in a way that is informative to consumers to adhere to FDA regulations for cosmetics and nutraceuticals. Ingredient data is tracked and managed in modern cosmetic and nutraceutical manufacturing ERP software to allow for precise product labeling for each finished batch.
